Obama not so terrible; still going to lose
The debacle in Denver is just a dot in Barack Obama’s rear-view mirror and he showed up for the second debate at Hofstra University in better form. Chances are it had something to do with the new Presidential Pharmacologist. Regardless, most Democrats in the media are gleefully and predictably declaring victory. Well, it is a victory: it’s a moral victory, and those are for losers.
Other media fanboys, fangirls, and Democrat operatives won’t see it as a moral victory, they’ll see it as a relative victory; that is, Obama was better than before. Relative victories are also for losers. Were they actually fearful Obama would perform more poorly than in the first debate?
The bummer for Obama is he now needs a knockout October surprise, whether it’s at the next debate, in some sort of miracle regarding the economy, some devastating personal information on Mitt Romney, or being able to climb out of Benghazigate with the Administration’s dignity enhanced.
All appear unlikely.
Plus, the President has this thing that follows him everywhere he goes and it ain’t his shadow. It’s his record.
This will not end well for Barry.
